Suggestions, please

I've been sick all weekend and I've been feeling really old.
I was looking at photo's and this one stood out to me.
It was taken when I was 26, I think.
I remember it was Halloween.
Bono Baby looks so little and young.
I look young too.

I was reading Brittany's blog post about her 34 Things To Do Before She Turns 35, and I was so inspired.
This year will be my 35th year as well.
So, dear friends, my goal for this week is to come up with my 34 before 35.
Let me know if you have any suggestions.

update: I've been watching Roseanne re-runs (I love John Goodman). Roseanne just said that she is 35. I'm kind of freaking out about that.

I have 2 months left so I don't know if I can accomplish that many things. Maybe I'll make my list of things I've done.
You should add making bread to your list, I made my first loaves yesterday and it was easy and yummy.
Good luck, You are like a find wine, you just get better with age!

See the Redwoods
Go to another country (Canada would count!)
Good idea - I should try 39 before 40 (good thing I still have a year or two...what a frightening number!)

i love that everyone is making lists. suggestions: apply for a passport (if you don't already have one), trip to new york, take dance classes, get the diana project up and running, bake something exotic, teach a class, have a show with your photos! p.s. - i love the short hair, too.

love and hugs

You and Bono baby look super hot! :-) I've always wanted to make a list like this, but have only seen lists of "things to do before I die," then don't make one, because it's too sad to think of dying and having unfinished things on my list. I would MUCH prefer a list to do before a certain age! I'll have to make my own. My only suggestion is to make a quilt. I don't know if you've already made one, but I haven't and it is a must do for me someday.

OH, my goodness. Thank you for the recomendations. I am having the hardest time coming up with my list and your kind words are surely helping me along. I am so thankful to have each and every one of you in my world.
love love love,
p.s. Keep um' coming, pretty please.

read Henry and June by Anais Nin, if you haven't yet! Visit the Olympic Peninsula! (I wish I could, if only I were on the west coast!).
ps - I mailed your print today. :)

I'm glad you're doing this too. I think it really has given me accountablity by putting it on my blog. I've been working on several already.

If you haven't finished your list yet, here's what helped me:
-I left a Word document open all day, (maybe two days:) and when I thought of something I would run to the computer and type it in.
-I wanted some that would be difficult/take effort, but I felt like I need to balance them with ones that were just plain fun. I think it will be nice to check it off my list when I've visited someone who has a trampoline and done a few backflips:)

Do you read Hula70? she's awesome with lists. She's where I got the idea.
(make sure to click on her "I like to make lists" label at the end of the post--she has some great lists! I think this is the third year she's done one of these birthday lists. I copied a couple of her goals like "wander aimlessly." Because I'm a copy cat like that:)
